At eight-year mark, company reflects on progress, thanks partners and plans for the future
BALTIMORE, MD (January 31, 2023)—Tradepoint Atlantic, a 3,300-acre global multimodal logistics hub and industrial center located at the iconic Bethlehem Steel site in Sparrows Point, today released “Industry in Motion,” a new longform brand film that reflects on the company’s progress over the last eight years, pays tribute to the many individuals responsible for their success, and turns an eye toward the future and what lies ahead. The film features state and local leaders, community partners, and Tradepoint Atlantic employees.
“The past eight years have been nothing short of incredible for Sparrows Point and the companies and employees who now call Tradepoint Atlantic home,” said Kerry Doyle, Managing Director of Tradepoint Atlantic. “As we look back, it’s appropriate to recognize where we have been and who helped us get here—not just Tradepoint Atlantic employees, but our supporters, partners, and community members who have all made this revitalization effort possible.
“At the same time, we also know that not everyone fully understands exactly what happens on this site from day to day,” continued Doyle. “This film helps us showcases who we have become and what we do. We couldn’t be more excited about what the future holds not only for Tradepoint Atlantic and the communities we serve, but the state as a whole.”
What started in 2014 as an ambitious redevelopment of an iconic shuttered steel plant has turned into one of the most significant industrial logistical and manufacturing sites in the nation. To date, Tradepoint Atlantic has created more than 12,000 permanent new jobs, recruited some of the nation’s most recognizable Fortune 500 companies, prioritized the highest possible levels of environmental site remediation, and partnered with local communities.
Looking ahead, Tradepoint Atlantic is committed to the vision and commitments it shared with stakeholders—from economic growth, to environmental stewardship, to community partnerships. With new operations like Tradepoint Terminals, which launched in early 2022, and TPA’s recently announced joint venture with Terminal Investment Limited (TiL) on the horizon, new growth opportunities previously unimaginable are now exciting realities.
As Tradepoint Atlantic reflects on its progress, it remains dedicated to the continued clean up and transformation of Sparrows Point, and to its vision of returning jobs and economic opportunity to the Baltimore region.
